    if u drop my truck outta a plane it would prolly have enough drag to do a 1/4 mile in only 13sec lol
    Palm prē-ist.

    not true according to physics class that according to newton, everything drops at a constant 9.8 meters per second so if that's true, it would take longer then 13 seconds and if the plane was att legal altitude

    No everything ACCELERATES at 9.8 metres per second per second (i.e. speed increases by 9.8 metres per second ever second until it reaches terminal velocity where friction of the air prevents any further acceleration)

    I got a 10sec honda that will smoke all of ya for 1/5 the price...







































    Let me go back to sleep and i'll prove it

    Sigh.....I miss my LT1 z28.....HOWEVER...GTO coming soon...the motor is too much of a deal to pass on.


    ...I thought this was a cell phone site?

    All objects fall at the same rate with negligible air resistance.

    very do-able, get a CRX and drop a K20 w/ drag slicks low 12's guaranteed w/ only bolt ons and Kpro.

    Drop turbo on it 10's is do-able if you can find enought traction lol

    How low in the 12's are you? Awesome rear shot of your Camaro (Hope none of my Maverick buddies see this post!). I'm hoping to just dip into the 12's when I put the 3.80's in my Grabber. I knocked .4 off my previous best when I put them in the 77 with the same drivetrain.

    Sorry to keep this off topic.

    You basically just said the same thing. And most people don't live in a vacuum.

    Nevermind, this thread is not going back on topic any time soon.

    Wow..never thought this discussion would ever pop up on a pre discussion board..haha..But I disagree with your comment. His post states that air resistance plays a major role of an object reaching terminal velocity. I was just saying I think it plays a very negligible role in an object reaching terminal velocity. ah hell doesn't matter anyway..It's Friday let's get that update!

    Hehe, very true. Ok no more off topic from me. Well, after this.

    It is rather negligible for many objects, but it has a very significant effect between a feather and a bowling ball (my favorite example from physics class ). In a vacuum, they would accelerate at the same rate.

    I would have smoked you all with my 1966 Supercharged 427 750 hp AC Cobra.
